Welcome to this site! My name is Claris Lam.
I write short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. I am currently writing multiple novels.
I previously won 3rd place in the Elora Short Story Festival in 2015 (Teen Category). My poetry has been featured in The Blank Page (2019) and in the poetry collections “Depths Of Summer” (2021) and “It’s Twelve O’Clock!” (2021). Recently, my work “Crocuses” was featured in Create Waterloo’s World Poetry Day event from March 21st-25th, 2022.
One of my flash fiction pieces, “Waterlogged Boredom,” was featured in the anthology Sensorially Challenged, Vol. 3 (2021).
I even previously participated in, and achieved all my writing goals during NaNoWriMo (2020 and 2021) and Camp NaNoWriMo (April 2018, April 2020, and July 2020)!
I also go by the name Mystical Authoress for posting fanfiction. I’ve been writing and posting fanfiction on Fanfiction.net since 2012. I started crossposting fanfics to Archive Of Our Own in 2018.
I’ve been writing book reviews since 2015 as well! On this site, you’ll find all my book reviews, as well as other book-and-writing-related subjects such as major updates on my writing progress, news about publication, and so much more. You’ll also find links to the fanfiction, original fiction, and poetry I have published as well!
Thank you for reading my work, whether it be the reviews, the fiction, or even fanfiction! I hope that my works give you a sense of magic like reading and writing do for me.
